Return to Fowler’s Inn



Now that I’ve seen the “rebuilt” version, this Fowler’s Inn thing has me a little fascinated. Here’s an undated slide that has a lot going on: the defunct Keel Boats, the train ( I definitely prefer this encased car instead of the open cars being used today), Fowler’s Inn, and of course, a nice sunset. For those of you burned out on FI, here’s an undated shot of the Storybook Land scenery, with some backstage stuff barely visible in the back.

Wow, love that shot of Fowler's Inn, as you said, so much activity. And the train is still so close. I wonder how much they moved it for the NOS construction? I'd say maybe 100 feet?

Here are some photos I took of Fowler's Inn and the drydock during Splash Mountain construction, May 1987 and then one month later, it was all gone.
